WORKac to design new home for Eyebeam in Brooklyn

Eyebeam, a non-profit arts and technology centre in New York, is to relocate its home from Chelsea to a new development in Brooklyn Cultural District designed by WORK Architecture Company (WORKac). The scheme will be part of a wider project developed by Jonathan Rose Companies and will comprise market rate and subsidised housing, a restaurant and cultural facilities. Eyebeam will develop and own the 27,000 sq ft space for cultural use.

Amale Andraos, Principal at WORKac commented: “Eyebeam is a groundbreaking institution and we are thrilled to be engaged in thinking about its future, as it continues to lead at the intersection of art, media and technology, in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn’s vibrant creative community.” Work is expected to begin onsite in 2015 with the first components (cultural facilities) due to open in late 2016.
